Fresno Runner is your source for all things running in Fresno and beyond.

Fresno Runner is run by a former journalist and longtime runner who fell into the Fresno running scene as a member of Bullard High School’s cross county and track teams in the mid-90s and — after some time away from Fresno — found it again in 2013.

Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about running in Fresno and the Central Valley. This is the place for race previews and reviews, gear reviews, running tips and tricks, running inspiration, and more.
